How We Met

Mackie came into my life when I needed him most. I had just spent almost 4 years with a horse that was all wrong for me. Mackie was such a willing partner, he made having a horse such a treat. He tried to please no matter what you asked of him. Knowing what I know now, I realize that life was really tough for Mackie. He had many health issues, everything from mild colic to choke, to allergic reaction to a vaccine and then a reaction to the antibiotic. His biggest challenge was getting and surviving EPM not once but twice. As a result of the EPM meds he developed gastric ulcers, it just went on and on. Thru all of this Mackie never once complained. It looked like we were finally on our way to enjoying ourselves, when his behavior changed, nothing drastic, just a little off. After a consultation with our Vet, an appointment was made at the University Equine Hospital for Mackie to see a cardiologist. The night before our appointment I told Mackie that we were going to get some answers, in my heart I knew it was not good, but I had hope because after all, these people were specialists. It was a very long day, filled with tons of tests and information overload. When all the info had been gathered, we sat down and they explained to me that he was in heart failure, only one of his four heart valves was functioning. They felt that this condition had been present for years, they said for me not to beat myself up, it was NOT something that either Dr. Cook or I had missed. Typically horses don't show symptoms because they keep trying, they said Mackie never gave up, his heart did.. His prognosis was poor to hopeless, I had 3 options, 1. leave him at the hospital and treat, however, they told me that they did not recommend treatment, even if it did help, it would be short lived. 2. take him home to die, but it would not be a peaceful death. 3. I could let him go now. I choose to let him go, I stayed with him, at his side the whole time, it was important to me that my face and my voice be the last he saw and heard. I held him and told him how much he was loved, I came home alone that day. He was only 12. I donated his body to the University Hospital, I got great comfort from knowing that his heart might help someone else's horse. I miss him everyday. Love you Mackie. We will meet again.

Holiday Monday, at least it is paid....
We went to a mortgage burning party yesterday. I'm not one for going out much, but this was a good time. It is a co worker, she is a year younger than me. They had a fish fry to celebrate paying off their house. It was mostly family and a few friends, like me and David. Tons of food and a beautiful sunny afternoon. Talk soon, have a great day, Love Donna Lee

Hi Angel Mackie, Been really busy lately. Did a trail ride with my nephew on Friday. Jax is doing so much better. So glad I have a trainer. It has made a big difference. Went with my nephew to his barrel race today.He did really well. He missed 2nd in the 4D. They had 131 riders. I have a great start to a farmers tan LOL. Vicki & Big Jax

Angel Mackie is sending you all his love and thoughts Donna Lee ✞ my goodness, what a drive into work this morning…I got up at 4:30 am and by the time I left at 6 am we received 2” of rain already. It is to rain all day soooo guess you know what that means. Weather folks say to look at the bright side-we are no longer in a drought! Yesterday it was partly cloudy and some sun and the wind was blowing pretty good so I thought it was going to dry us some~NOT~ the herd enjoyed turn out and I had to fly spray them a little and they were happy. Happy trails and Have a wonderful day ♡

STILL 4 DAY WEEKS....
Our hours are still reduced, we have started to process some of the birds from the original quarantine, it is called the Control Zone, they can not be exported and must be processed in a specific way as to not mix them with non Control Zone birds. It is not over yet, but we are seeing a light...Love Donna Lee

I found a very pretty little solar Pixie Fairy light yesterday when I was shopping. I'm taking it to my Mom's grave today. The fairy is holding a bird in her hands, when Mom died I had white doves released at her grave side, I think she will like this, have a wonderful day, we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

HI, left a vote. A hot one here today, 85! Thank you everyone for Amber's HOTD! I didn't however get to share any treats with her today. She has been out with the herd, and safe from the virus. Until we get the okay, no contact with her. So I will give her lots of treats when the threat has passed.

Another beautiful day here. Figured I would get on HC and give my votes. My niece and her boys are taking me out for dinner tonight. I have a wedding tomorrow and work on Sunday. Looks like Jax is getting the weekend off. Monday if the weather stays nice my nephew and I are going trail riding. He will ride over and get us then we will ride to his home for dinner. Then he and his family will take Jax & I home. Not ready to ride alone with my boy. He is too spooky yet. He does real well with others. But, he is still young, I know it will come. It will give us something different to do.Keeps us both on our toes lol. Have a great Friday. With the crazy weekend, I will do silent votes :) Vicki & Big Jax

HI, left a vote. I left silent votes yesterday. So to date, there are now 9 cases of the EHV-1. Five are fevers only, 4 are neurological. Abby the horse at my barn that came down with it last Friday, is back. She is by herself right now, but she is doing much better. I hope she will have a full recovery. Will not know that for at least another two months. The first horse that came down with it, is still at OSU and not doing well. No other horses at my barn have gotten sick. Zip is doing good, had another ride today, and he did great. Amber is still out with the herd, and that is probably a good thing. The OHSET state meet that was suppose to be next week has been canceled. A lot of local shows, and arenas have closed until the end of the month.

Love, a vote and an update on the Mare. From Tandra Hefley:
Update #2
Fox 10 News was just here. Jill Monier interviewed me and Miracle. I couldn't go into detail earlier about what was going on with her, but I want to let everyone know all their efforts to save her paid off! The Livestock Inspector Supervisor was the one that came to get her. She IS NOT being returned to the hell she was forced to endure. She is going to the state vets office to be evaluated and treated. There is a criminal investigation that has been started. So Miracle is safe! I appreciate everyone that came to see her and offered words of encouragement! I wanted to let everyone know earlier that what was being said was garbage! But I was asked not to until she was picked up so that no one could try to interfere. The people or person that tried to claim she was stolen and not left in the road will pay for what they did to her. All I have to say to the people that tried to defend them is check your facts next time! I know everyone that had something to say thought they were doing the right thing. But when an animals life is at stake it doesn't matter who you like or who you don't. All that matters is that animals life!
